Destruction Unit is the sort of band that needs to be seen live to be fully appreciated. That feels like a strange thing to say, especially given the strengths of Void and Deep Trip, the pair of albums released by the Phoenix psych-punk band last year. While those albums did an excellent job of harnessing their spaced-out guitar rock in all its ear-bleeding glory, getting to witness the band's piercing feedback and distortion and slowly tromp the noise into one relentlessly catchy repeating riff after another is a mesmerizing sight to behold. When singer/guitarist Ryan Rousseau took a hard fall from the Mississippi Studios stage last year, the rest of the band were too busy spinning and twisting in their own zones to take notice.
